What are you doing that satisfies you with your current artworks? It is important to reflect on the work

“All art is quite useless.” — Oscar Wilde: Art isn’t utilitarian, and if it is, perhaps it isn’t art. Art serves a non-practical role in our lives, but that does not mean that it is not vital or necessary. One’s individual identity and our collective identity as a culture have no clear serviceability, but they are critical to our ability to function as a society.

Think about the canvas and what you are going to do to make it. Remember – this Narrative work based on the works of Mark Tansey AND Alex Bradley Cohen, and William H. Johnson
